Adult brings joy by painting faces of children

A child with medium light skin tone and black hair in tight braids, has their face painted like a lion or fox by an adult. Text overlaid reads “Adult brings joy by painting faces of children.”

“While walking my dogs I spotted an adult sitting in a garden painting the faces of some very excited children.

I don’t know what the context was but I thought it was really kind of them to spend the time turning them into whatever wild and wonderful things they wanted to be!”

I suspect many of us can relate to the joy of having our faces painted as children – passing that on is a real kindness.

Kindness is everywhere, remind yourself of that:

Stranger finds phone on cycling trail and turns detective to return it to rightful owner!

Friend does hair and sews up dress before wedding.

Stranger helps walker stuck in mud.
